Kronos is a well-made, moderate budget science-fictioner which boasts quality special effects that would do credit to a much higher-budgeted film.

Script [from a story by Irving Block] tells of the efforts of a people from outer space to capture Earth’s energy. To do this, they send an accumulator to Earth, which is directed in its movement by the head of a great American lab, whose brain has been seized by a higher intelligence from space.

Feature takes its title from the accumulator a huge metal cube-shaped figure 100 feet high, after the mythological god of evil, and which nothing seemingly can destroy.

Jeff Morrow heads cast as a scientist who has charted the course of the asteroid which has transported the accumulator to Earth. John Emery is convincing as the lab head forced by the outer-space intelligence to direct the monster. Barbara Lawrence is in strictly for distaff interest, but pretty.
